Commonly used beauty staple clinically proven to help treat eczema
Date:3/9/2009

EDISON, NJ, March 9, 2009 Mild to moderate eczema sufferers who are looking for a cost-effective way to control and heal this skin condition without a prescription now have a new option to consider. A new study in the March 2009 issue of the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology finds that an over-the-counter moisturizer, Albolene Moisturizing Cleanser (long used for its effective, yet gentle, moisturizing, makeup-removing properties), is just as efficacious as a leading prescription moisturizer, Mimyx for a fraction of the price and easier availability right on the drug store shelf in the reduction of dryness, scaling and itching related to mild to moderate eczema.

"It was very interesting to see that an over-the-counter moisturizing formulation that has been around for more than 100 years, was equally as efficacious as a more modern prescription moisturizing cream for the treatment of mild and moderate eczema," says Zoe Diana Draelos, M.D., dermatologist and lead researcher/author of the study. "These results show that some over-the-counter moisturizers should be looked at more closely since they are proving to be effective 'cosmeceuticals,' helping to create real, physical changes in the skin." This opens up opportunities to larger populations of sufferers of certain skin issues who have limited access to dermatologists or, even, prescription medications, she adds.

Eczema is one of the most common conditions that results in dermatologic visits, particularly for children. Most of the skin damage associated with eczema is not from the condition, itself, but comes as a result of the scratching due to the itchiness and irritation. Additionally, eczema is also a condition that returns if the skin is not cared for properly on a regular basis, so sufferers can help reduce the risk of flare-ups by keeping the skin moisturized, which means trapping the natural moisture in the skin thereby decreasing transepidermal water loss (TEWL).
